Olivia is growing up so fast. The older she gets the more opinionated she is. She cracks me up on a daily basis with the things she says and does. However, the smarter she gets the better she gets at driving me absolutely insane at times! She is still in her never-ending "mommy phase"...some of you moms might know this phase...the one where they want YOU and only YOU to do everything for them. Of course, I don't give in to this most of the time. But there are instances where I'm so extremely exhausted and it's supposed to be daddy's bath night but I give in and give her the bath just so I don't have to hear her cry about it.
We just got back from a BBQ...she didn't know any of the people there so of course she wouldn't let me out of her sight for two seconds. Every 30 seconds or so she'd find me and say "Mommy" but not in a cute voice, in an extremely whiny voice to make sure I wouldn't leave her side. Times like these I just want to scream! I end up taking it out on poor Dennis when it's not even his fault. He WANTS Olivia to want him to do things with her. He probably gets his feelings hurt every day. But somehow I still feel resentment towards him since he just gets to sit back and relax while I deal with our whiny and clingy daughter.
Sorry for the rant. It feels better now that it's out.
I keep waiting for the "daddy phase" to come. People tell me it's coming...but not soon enough!
